Get Ready, Conditional Adult-Use Retail Dispensaries!

Conditional Adult-Use Retail Licensees will be the first dispensaries to open for adult-use cannabis sales in New York State.
Taking bold actions to encourage social justice, public health and economic development in the lives of all New Yorkers
Office of Cannabis Management

The Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act creates a first in the nation comprehensive regulatory structure to oversee the licensure, cultivation, production, distribution, sale and taxation of medical, adult-use and cannabinoid hemp within New York State. 

Comprehensive Regulatory Framework
Social Justice

Establishes a robust social and economic equity program to actively encourage members from communities disproportionally impacted by the policies of prohibition to participate in the new industry.

Public Health & Safety

Administers a sophisticated quality assurance regulatory structure including standards for production and manufacturing, strict product testing, labeling, packaging and advertising to ensure products are safe for consumers and not targeted to youth.

Economic Development

Encourages small business and farmers to participate in the cannabis industry with the creation of microbusiness, cooperative and delivery license types.
